  • 932 S 23rd St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The residents in the vicinity of 932 South 23rd street (I am not sure of the exact address but it is in this area) continue to ILLEGALLY reserve a parking spot. I have put a call into the 17th police district where they instructed me to call 911 to report it. I did make a report into 911 last night as I am fed up with seeing these residents reserve a spot that is open for public parking. These residents are not above the law and should follow the rules like everyone else.
  • 22nd & Fitzwater Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Drug dealers on Fitzwater near 22nd operating daily. Usually seen in the evenings on the East side of 22nd.
  • Drug Dealing Archived
    735 S 21st Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Open air drug dealing occurring consistently outside of this house. Additionally, same dealers seen going into and out of the house during all hours of the day and night. Verbal intimidation has occurred while walking by on several occasions.
  • 1004 South 20th Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    This building is a horrible eyesore and disgrace.
  • 2509 Grays Ferry Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    A very deep – at least 5 feet – sinkhole has formed at the intersection of Grays Ferry Ave. and Christian St. on Gray's Ferry. It has also undermined the area surrounding it and the pavement looks like it will collapse inward any minute. There is a large crack going from the sinkhole to a PECO manhole cover. The base of the stoplight also looks like it could be compromised. A pedestrian could easily step into this and be up to their neck.
  • 1501 Montrose Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    1501 Montrose Street is a nuissance property. It is a mixed use apt/commercial. The bottom floor used to be a laundromat. The area behind the property (on 15th) is a constant source of sanitation violations: garbage bags, old furniture, wood, etc.

    In addition, someone has placed a brown rubbermaid trash can on the sidewalk (on 15th btw Montrose & Christian). This attracts all manner of food waste, old clothes, etc. At this moment, it is overflowing. People see the trash and simply add more to it. Last week there was a filthy mattress dropped off. Yesterday, a discarded car seat.

    The neighbors try to keep the surrounding area clean. There is even a thriving community garden next to all of this garbage.

    It is an eyesore and a health hazard. Neighbors have seen rodents at this location.

    We have called 311 numerous times and the trash can has been emptied once or twice. But this property is a serious violator of sanitation laws and the culprits are making the area miserable for all others.

  • Excessive Trash Acknowledged
    620 S 16th St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    There are heaps of trash constantly on 16th bw South and Bainbridge. How can we have residents clean out front their properties??
  • 2700-2798 Bainbridge St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Multiple times a day cars, often traveling at high rates of speed, have near misses with pedestrians crossing Bainbridge St because there is no stop sign for cars traveling north on Schuylkill Avenue and visibility is limited especially when large vehicles are parked in the spaces closest to the intersection. Please install a stop sign here before someone gets seriously injured or killed. Thank you.
  • 2221 St Albans Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The legal AND Illegal tenants of the PHA property located at 2221 St Albans street have taken to using an orange traffic cone to reserve a personal parking spot not only in front of the house, but will also place the cone in front of other TAX PAYING resident's homes on the block. This has just recently started and I believe that the "new" and illegal tenants are the culprits. Piles of garbage are also left in front of the property all week long where the trash is rotting and is now beginning to attract rodents.
  • 17th St & Montrose St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The lot at 17th between Montrose & Carpenter is not only growing tall weeds, it's also starting to become a spot for dumping. Under the trees was never completely cleared of junk for the house the was demolished, and now others are starting dump closer to the street
  • 1850 Carpenter St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    After 9pm, the entire block has people out smoking weed. Its dark, nothing but porch dwellers. I don't feel safe walking this block nor would I ever ever have a guest walk around here after 9pm. I'm sure there is drug dealing going on here.
  • 746 S 24th St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    This SUV parked *all* weekend in this same spot and received NO TICKETS. Why??? Not only did it block the crosswalk, it blocked the curb cut. The plates have a "disabled" symbol -- and apparently the driver doesn't care if anyone else has to walk out into the street or get hit by a car turning left from Grays Ferry to 24th because this enormous SUV has blocked all visibility.

    (This car sat in the adjacent alley another weekend without getting ticketed, even though others were trying to access the alley for legitimate reasons.)

    Please make sure this car gets ticketed just as everyone else does! The driver is getting the message that s/he can park wherever s/he likes, and that's totally uncool.
